Educators can bring the world of art, science, history and more to their classroom with the 2015 Museum Educators Open House and connect with the museums through teaching and learning. Participants can choose from a variety of curriculum-relevant presentations throughout the day plus earn CPE credits at this free event.

Whole Foods will offer participants an opportunity to attend their Healthy Teachers Program and apply for a Whole Foods Kids Foundation garden grant. Whole Kids Foundation has trained more than 7,000 teachers across the country and many Texas schools have participated sending over 1,300 teachers to this free nutrition and cooking class.

Chevron and Whole Foods will be co-hosting “Power Up” stations in between sessions, offering healthy snacks, beverages and outlets to charge electrical devices.
